10th Winter School on “Ethics of Neuroscience and AI” 2021

8–12 March via Zoom. Please register by 19 February 2021 (first come, first served).

This year we will have a focus on Artificial Intelligence.

See official Winter School website:

The Winter School is organized by the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Berlin/ICCN, the Berlin School of Mind and Brain and Excellence Cluster “Science of Intelligence”. The event is tailored for MSc and PhD students, but covers a range of topics of potential interest to other researchers, reflecting on the ethical and societal consequences of modern neuroscience.

Theoretical foundations, as well as practical and ethical aspects are addressed. Participants will benefit from a combination of lectures with group work and discussions, where they will put the learned content into practice.

Registration is now open! Register here: https://www.bccn-berlin.de/registration-form-winter-school-2021.html
